  • The East Hampton High School softball team lost 12-2 in a nonleaguer at Hampton Bays Saturday.
  • The East Hampton High School boys tennis team continued undefeated, at 4-0, in league play this past week by bageling Riverhead 7-0 on April 15, the girls lacrosse team improved its record to 3-4, defeating Deer Park 17-8 and John Glenn 16-12.
  • East Hampton High’s baseball team, after losing its first two series by lopsided scores, bounced back this past week to take two of three from Amityville.
  • It seemed reading the paper the other morning that all was chaos, and yet . . . and yet the baseball season had begun!

    And, somehow — for that moment at any rate — everything seemed all right, everything seemed natural, and fitting, and harmonious — just as it should be.

    And, what’s this, the Mets won!

    And what’s this, the Yankees lost!

    On opening day. The lowly raised up and the mighty fallen — just as it should be.

  • While things continued to proceed in rather lackluster fashion last week insofar as East Hampton High’s lacrosse and baseball teams were concerned, the school’s boys tennis and track teams — not to mention the girls track team, which put up a fight in a losing cause — pushed to the fore.
  • The Montauk Rugby Club took it on the chin at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday as it was outscored 35-10 by the New York Rugby Club in a second-round Empire Geographical Union Division III playoff match.
  • The Booster Club would be in a position to sponsor summer camps here in return for donations to the club and the proviso that the children of year-round residents could attend at minimal cost.
  • Carl Johnson, who coached the Bridgehampton High School Killer Bees basketball team to a state championship at Glens Falls recently, is Newsday’s coach of the year in Suffolk, and one of his players, Charles Manning Jr., has been named to Newsday’s all-Long Island first team.

    Those announcements were made in Newsday’s Sunday high school sports edition.

    It was the third time Johnson, who now has three state championships to his credit as a player and four as a coach, has been Suffolk’s coach of the year.

  • “You’re quite the tennis player,” my younger opponent said the other night.

    Well, I would like to think so, but there’s much to do. Several times recently I’ve felt I was on the brink of mastering my serve, only to be disabused. Tim Ross says he has that got-it-nailed feeling with his golf swing at times only to have it vanish the next time out.

  • East Hampton High’s track teams jumped into spring with meets on April 1. The boys went to Miller Place that day for a tri-meet with that school and Amityville, and the girls played host to their strong Miller Place peers.

    Predictably, the Miller Place girls won, though Yani Cuesta’s charges were competitive, losing in the end by a score of 80-60. The boys, in turn, defeated Miller Place 72-64, but lost 90-57 to Amityville, “though it wasn’t due to a lack of effort,” Luis Morales, their coach, said in an email report.
